(NASHVILLE, TN), August 17, 2011 — “While I am encouraged by this improvement, we must remain vigilant in our fight against infant mortality.  In Shelby County, the infant mortality rate remains twice the national average and fifty percent higher than the state average, and I intend to present legislation in January that will address this tragic situation.”
